    Ryan, do your truck a favor and get some more gear. It will love you alot more. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If you run stuff like that on a regular basis definilty get more gear. It will turn your slamfest into a controlled crawl. Looks like alot of fun though. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    So thats what the hype on highsteer is all about...

    You know your over 30 when you go rock crawling, because you probably have a job to repair your rig everytime you go out.

    Last time I 'wheeled I looked just like that when I was fighting my carb to keep the engine running.

    Crazy to see someone fight with a rig like that when it's running as it is supposed to though.

    Mud gets old and then you'll want to try something else.

    Could always make it a pretty mall truck or add some 20" lift springs and haul it around to shows /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Be careful with the 20" lift. Max legal height is 13' 6" and with it on the trailer you'd take out the low hanging viaducts. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
